Junyong Pak, 2 time Toughest Mudder World Champ smashes Guinness Book World Record by  running the fastest marathon (3:12:47) carrying a 40lb. weight.  Pak says: “it’s an addictive rush when you’re so good at tolerating pain—and you come out the other side”.  Few would argue that when Junyong toes the start line at any obstacle race that he represents anything less than a serious threat. 

Richard Diaz catches up with him to find out how he does it.  We’ll talk nutrition, training and grit and plans for future competitions, obstacle racing and marathon running. He also discusses his plans to win the World Championship Ultra Beast this year.
